The Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein officially handed in a petition Friday asking election officials in the battleground state of Wisconsin to perform a recount of its general election results, the state confirmed. She is trying to stop Trump before the Electoral College votes. Clinton has not joined her because there was not enough claims of voter fraud in those states so the Democrats are keeping their distance letting Stein carry the ball.
Yet Stein has raised nearly $5 million, but has cleverly made it clear there are no guarantees and she will keep the money. Her website says:
We cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states we are targeting. We can only pledge we will demand recounts in those states.
If we raise more than what’s needed, the surplus will also go toward election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform.
